Superior Spooktacular Provides Update On Event Due To COVID-19
Superior's North End is home to the annual Superior Spooktacular Parade and accompanying events. The weekend of celebration coincides with Halloween and is celebrated normally on the last weekend of October. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there of course have been questions about if the event will take place this year as scheduled beginning October 25th, 2020. Organizers posted on Facebook an update to where they are at with the decision this year.
In the Facebook post, they are "very confident that the event will take place in some shape or form." They elaborate that the event may include measures to ensure social distancing, such as a drive in movie event. A drive in concert is also being considered, along with a reverse parade. A reverse parade is described as people driving by floats instead of the floats driving by people. This would prevent crowds from forming on the street.
The event is still months away in October, but as so many other events have been cancelled across the Northland and the entire country through the summer, people have been already asking about the Spooktakular event. There is no mention on whether they would be doing the North End Nightmare 5k, which is a race that takes place during the weekend.
They urge the community to check back for updates as more information becomes available about the event by visiting their Facebook page. We will also continue to update you on the status here at B105 on this event and any other COVID-19 related news.
